PHOENIX -- When landscaper Kathy Mondotte injured her spinal chord in a work-related accident, she suddenly found herself adjusting to life in a wheelchair.

"While I was in the wheelchair and I would go out with my girlfriends at nighttime for dinner or to the movies, my thought was, 'I am not going to be in that boring black or navy blue seat,' " she said.

That's when she came up with Wheelchair Solutions, accessories that are not only stylish but functional.
